The Archaeological Institute of America’s Archaeology Abridged series presents:

Traitors or Native Conquistadors? The Role of Tlaxcala in the Fall of Aztec Mexico

A free lecture by David Carballo on Thursday, March 23 at 1pm CT

Following three centuries of colonial rule, when Mexicans achieved their independence from Spain they embraced prehispanic cultural symbols and labelled Indigenous groups who had allied with Spaniards in the sixteenth century as “traitors”, particularly the traditional Mexica-Aztec foes, the Tlaxcaltecs. Recent scholarship has questioned such categorizations as a simplification of Native agency in a time of European colonial expansion. In this talk, David Carballo will provide an overview of Tlaxcaltec resistance and resilience both during the Aztec period and early New Spain.
